With over 1,000 MSMEs in the sector and abundant supply of skilled manpower, Telangana is today the most sought after investment destination for a large number of foreign aerospace and defence majors including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, GE, Safran, Pratt and Whitney, CFM, Elbit systems, Thales etc.

Praveen PA, director, Aerospace and Defence, Government of Telangana, told Telangana Today, “This year, we are having both ‘Wings India 2020’ and ‘Global Aviation Summit’ in Hyderabad. Given the Coronavirus situation a lot of foreign delegates are unable to attend the event. So we are arranging their participation via video conference.”

“We are extremely cautious of challenges arising out of COVID-19 and are taking precautions, including keeping it strictly for business delegates and prohibiting entry of general public, children and older visitors. We also hope that the event will demonstrate how with adequate precautions and control measures core business can be facilitated in such challenging times,” noted Praveen.
